The thrill & hard work of a lifetime – Incredible honor to be part of the
Gibson guitar family & supported by Gibson Brands!
Special thanks to Jenny Marsh – Gibson Seattle.

The Gibson Brands Artist contract is the most iconic, rarest and hardest to achieve endorsement contract in the music business. “It is extremely rare” as one industry giant mentioned to me. Hard earned it was, thrilling it remains.
A rewarding sidenote (and true): On the day of my contract signing, Todd Money/GibsonNashville sent the submission in to the Gibson execs, 10 minutes later the contract was drafted. Todd texted that it was the fastest agreement Gibson has ever done.
To be on the Gibson artist roster & part of the Gibson family (with such iconic musicians as Jimmy Page) is beyond words. (way, way down the totem pole, I might humbly add, but on the totem pole, none-the-less.)
